When it comes to the world of High Fantasy movies, man does this one have it all! There are evil wizards, monstrous hordes, a man destined to be king, Ringwraiths, Hobbits, even Gandal… wait… What do you mean that’s the wrong movie? It’s right here in the title, Return of … In the Name of the King? Aww, man! What a rip off! Join us this week as we discuss what could be best spun as a skid-row version of Lord of the Rings, the Uwe Boll fantasy epic(?) In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale. So to prepare, fight the off the invasion, remember your age, and get some top-shelf TP as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Do you ever find yourself watching a movie, reading a book, or playing a game and thinking to yourself, “This has happened before”? Of course, we all have? But, this form of entertainment deja vu isn’t because you’ve decided to re-watch, re-read, or re-play. Join us this week as we discuss the phenomenon of entertainment influencing itself, for better or for worse. From classic literature to classless television, it seems there are no bounds. Dust off that tome of Shakespeare, spike up that blow-out, and whatever you, don’t feed the Honey Boo Boo as you settle in for a certified original episode of Monkey in the Cage!
